I had some almonds in the fridge. Because next week we are leaving to go skiing (finally, I need a vacation RIGHT NOW), I'd like to finish everything that can go bad before.

This recipe came into my mind. To be honest, I don't have the slightest idea wher it came from. But here it is. From me to you.


  • 2/3 cups sunflower oil
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons hot water
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 cup toasted and chopped (big chunks) almonds
  • 175 gr. dark chocolate, in chunks
  1. Turn oven on at 180ºC. Get a rectangular baking pan ready: line it with parchment paper or grease and flour it. If it is a silicone pan, you don't have to do anything.
  2. Combine oil, sugar, water and eggs in a bowl.
  3. Sift together flour, baking powder and soda and salt in a separated bowl.
  4. Gradually add flour to egg mixture, blending well.
  5. Add almonds and chocolate. Pour in the baking pan.
  6. Bake for 30 - 40 min. Be careful not to overbake them as they turn hard.
  7. Allow to cool in then pan.
